    Default Naattu kozhi kuzhambu ( Especially for Teena and other chicken lovers)

    Ingredients to prepare sambar(kuzhambu) powder:

    (Don't be surprised...this is the secret ingredient we used to put while preparing this
    kuzhambu...)
    1/2kg - coriander seeds
    1 cup - raw rice or boiled rice
    3/4 cup - urud dhaal
    2 spoons - thoor dhaal
    50g - pepper
    50g - cumin
    25g - turmeric
    hand full of curry leaves
    (you can substitute less amount of the above items according to the correct proportion if u
    no need that amount of powder).

    Slightly fry the above ingredients and grind them as fine powder.


    Ingredients to prepare the masala for the kuzhambu:

    coconut - 1 cup
    ginger&garlic paste - 2 spoons
    pepper - 1/2 spoon
    sombu little bit
    pattai 1 or 2
    cloves 2 or 3
    kasa kasaa little bit
    pottu kadalai 2 or 3 spoons
    then grind all the above things and mix 5 spoons of that above sambar powder.


    Ingredients for cooking:

    chicken 1 kg
    Onion - 1
    tomato big size - 1
    curry leaves little bit
    mustard seeds
    tumerice powder 1 teaspoon
    chilli powder
    salt
    coriander leaves for garnishing
    lime juice (optional)

    1. Use a pressure cooker or any big kadai for cooking the chicken first.
    2. put some oil and add mustard seeds, curry leaves
    3. then add onion and fry little bit adding tumerice powder
    4. then add tomato and cook a bit
    5. add the chicken and little bit of water to it and cook until chicken is half cooked.

    If you use a pressure cooker allow one to two whistle until it is half cooked.
    Here in US, chicken is more tender than in India so please be careful while cooking it or else it would end up like a mashed chicken.

    Then separately boil the masala items that is ready to cook...say boil it for 15 minutes in a separate dish.

    Then pour this into that chicken that is cooked half way and allow it to cook completely until done...btw add chilli powder and salt as per ur need and squeeze lime if u want for a little bit of kick..then garnish with coriander leaves at last.

    Yummy chicken kuzhambu is ready to serve with rice or idlies or dosas...

    Super yaso
    Thanks a bunch!!!

    Adding sambar powder in ckn kolmabu seems to be different but adhan key ingredient pola irukku.

    Do we also need to fry the masala items before grinding? ( 2nd set of ingredients)

    You have mentioned separetly boil the masala items. Do you mean put it in hot water and boil just the masala and then add it to the chciken? Why don't we add it directly to the chicken and boil?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_range

    In the chicken farms in India (from which you get, 'broiler chicken'), the chickens are fed with mass produced typical chicken feed to make it fatten and grow quickly (the feed is composed of such stuff to induce harmone based growth).. Meat from those chickens are usually too tender (water retention also high), and often have a bland taste.. Makes sense because chicken is sold on the basis of weight. Make it fat, more heavy, you get more money per chicken.

    Nattu kozhi is similar to what is known as free range chicken in the US and else where. These are not fed with special chicken feed, but mostly grains and other similar stuff. There is not much water retention and hence the meat taste is different - and better.

    In US, free range chicken is usually grown for ethical reasons. There are chicken farms also, that is like regular farms but avoid hormone enhanced or otherwise altered feed. No artificial ingredients in the feed. Those are called naturally grown chicken. Regular chicken is expensive. Naturally grown is more expensive. Free range could be very expensive if you are not living next to the free range farm.

    Need more info?

    V, Where can we get this free-range chicken? Are you talking about organic chicken? We get chicken from Indian store. It really tastes better and takes a little longer to cook. I don't know if that is nattu koli.

    Organic is another variety, Teena. Organic chicken means, in the feed they will not add anything that is chemically processed.

    Regular chicken
    Naturally grown (foster farms, for example in California).. may have feed from general grains, non-orgnic
    Organic chicken (feeds from only organically produced stuff)
    Free range

    Most of the time, you can get free range chicken in farmers market, and specialty grocery stores. Most of the indian stores and chinese stores also (though not strictly free range) sell only chicken with no hormone additives. Thats why it takes a little longer to cook.. Those chicken are also usually lot smaller..
